CSR PERFORMANCE

NON-FINANCIAL EVALUATIONS TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT IN OUR CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT APPROACH

Nexity’s CSR performance is assessed by non-financial rating agencies and by a growing number of investors whose investment decisions now include ESG (environment, social and governance) criteria. As part of its continual improvement approach, Nexity notably considers the results of any such assessment shared with the Group to improve its non-financial performance:

 

GAÏA INDEX

The Gaia Index is used to assess the commitment of French listed companies (small- and mid-caps) to CSR.
Our positioning in the Gaïa Index in 2019:

  • 4th overall among the 230 companies evaluated,
  • In 2019, our overall score increased by 9 points relative to 2018.

 

CDP (CARBON DISCLOSURE PROJECT)

The largest glogal database about greenhouse gas emissions with 827 institutionals investors who manage over 100 billions of dollars of climate assets through volontary reporting.
Since 2011, Nexity has chosen to participate in CDP, demonstrating its commitment to fighting climate change.

In February 2020, the Group distinguished itself for its strategy and commitment to fighting climate change, obtaining a score of A- in the “Climate change” questionnaire, putting it in the top 6% of worldwide scores, in every sector of activity. For the first time Nexity also answered the “CDP Forests” questionnaire, to which few companies respond (543 compared to 8,000 for the climate part) and obtained a score of C.

 

ISS-OEKOM

In 2018, the ratings agency ISS-Oekom contacted and rated Nexity for the first time, rating it a C which places the Group in the top 25% for its sector.

 

CARBON FOOTPRINT ASSESSMENT (GRENELLE 2 ENVIRONMENTAL LAW – ARTICLE 75)

As part of our mitigation and adaptation to climate change policy, we have:

  • identified our main greenhouse gas emissions sources,
  • measured greenhouse gas emissions of our offices building since 2009,
  • respected the Article 75 of the Grenelle II Act by publishing our review of GHG emissions across the entire scope of its French operations.

In 2018, our GHG emissions represents around 21,062 tonnes of CO2 equivalent and decreased by 10.3% per employee compared to 2014.
Each year, our evaluations enable to identify targets of carbon that emits the most carbon dioxide (real estate development, commercial real estate, offices buildings) to better adapt our actions of reduction and decrease our impact.
